Mo: Howdy my friend! I was cited today for using your picture on Twitter. I wish to apologize as I am an artist on this site as well and it would anger me as well if people used my work. I forget where I got it at but it wasn't here. I wasn't aware that it was copyrighted and so I used it.

Now for the BAD news! I see your image everywhere, alone like you painted it and see it everywhere with sayings placed in at the top. It's dang near everywhere I go. Obviously you are not aware but it is a beautiful piece and many of my other Native friends have adopted it not knowing that they're using copyrighted material.

From now on, if you like, I will tell people that do use it to cease and desist on your behalf if you like. They, like me, mean no harm but it's such a moving piece that it's often used. A'ho is the most popular image with that on top once again. In a way it's good for me in that I always wondered about who the artist of this wonderful painting was and now I know. I'm just sorry that it was found out in this way.

I'll delete it from my image library and be done with it unless you'd approve of the action I suggested. emáčiyapi Grey Wolf

my image search software is slow, but it works. it will eventually find those violating my copyright, and i'll just do the necessary take down form.
i am aware (sadly) it is at a lot of places, not just first nations sites, many holistic/new age types too (they are the meanest!). everyone should share that
copyright infringement is no joke.

I totally agree and I had many doubts about showing my work here. Now I know that it's not safe-OR copyrighted so I'm screwed if someone uses it. Although it's not the same caliber as you, my work is a part of me.  It's a shame that our own Native Brothers and Sisters would not give you due respect. That leads me to think that they're as ignorant as I am on this matter. I still feel bad about using it but if I see it again I will tell the person to delete it from any posts. I respect you as a friend, brother and artist. Your paintings blow me away! Is there a gallery or any place where I could get a closer look? I may be old but I'm still learning. I am wishing you peace (screw new age crap)-Grey Wolf
